3.5 stars-- Holding on Tighter (Wicked Lovers #12) by Shayla Black

So. Holding on Tighter. It started rough. And it ended rough. But the middle bits were good! lol I read this one back in February then promptly forgot to review it other than that. Erms. Blogger fail, moment! Ha!


So. Basically our heroine runs a fashion company and some weird happenings land her needing our hunky brit hero for a security once over. And, well, naughty shenanigans ensue. Naughty shenanigans with a British accent. Squee!
"Stop," he panted.

She licked up his erection again in a saucy little rebellion. "This feel too much like harassment in the workplace?"

He hadn't seen her sense of humor before tonight, and he enjoyed it-- just not while his cock was on fire.

"No." His voice sounded gruff, harsh. "I want to be inside you."

She stroked the nerve-rich spot just under the head with her tongue again. "You always want to be inside me."

"You're damn right I do." He sat up and grabbed her arms. "Now."
Jolie and Heath were actually pretty fun. She's a bit up tight. He's a bit of a manwhore. They both have their reasons. And can't seem to help getting nekkid in front of the other. There's a bit of suspense with her business, a lotta sexy times and some laughs, too. It worked overall and I enjoyed watching them get over their fucked up selves and find romance.

But the ending. Yall, it was the epilogue that would. not. fucking. end. I loathe epilogues that try to bring EVERY past character in and update on how they're doing. While I love hearing a little about past characters here and there this was such overkill it knocked half a point off the final book because I could not have cared less. And, yes, like four months later I'm still annoyed with the epilogue. lol
Jolie Quinn is a woman in charge. Her no-nonsense attitude has made her a rising star in the fashion world and her brand a household name among the Dallas elite. Nothing will stop her from achieving her goals—not even the gorgeous British security contractor who seems just as interested in seeing her personal assets as he is in protecting her professional ones.

After a tragedy left him broken, Heath Powell made a rule of staying unattached. But Jolie challenges him in a way he can’t ignore, and he isn’t used to backing down from a confrontation—especially when the reward for winning could feel so good. As passion blazes between them, the stubborn, confident beauty arouses more than his desire. She touches his heart.

When a mysterious enemy threatens Jolie and her company, Heath is the only person Jolie can trust to help. But working with him to save her business might put her dangerously at risk of falling in love…
